Walk­ers of the week

Mansfield Courier - - Sport -

EV­ERY Oc­to­ber, the VicHealth Walk to School Pro­gram en­cour­ages pri­mary school chil­dren to walk, scoot or ride to and from school.

It’s a great way to help stu­dents learn healthy habits and achieve the rec­om­mended 60 min­utes of phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, ev­ery day.

Walk to School month runs from Oc­to­ber 7 to Novem­ber 1.

Over the four weeks we will pro­file a ‘Walker of the Week’ from each of the five pri­mary schools within the shire, who will re­ceive a $20 Sport­first voucher, kindly spon­sored by Mans­field and Dis­trict Com­mu­nity Bank.
